Abstract: When is interior water damage not the result of a roof leak? Wall leaks, plumbing leaks, and condensation can be interpreted as coming from the roof. How do you find the source? Visual examinations of interior and exterior surfaces reveal only potential leak sources. To make a repair that definitely works, the water path must be traced to its source.
